Sentinel-2 mosaic of the Balleny Islands

Sentinel-2 mosaic of the Balleny Islands

This Sentinel-2 mosaic of the Balleny Islands gives a realistic up-to-date visual color impression of the area as it appears during summer with a minimum of sea ice and snow. Most source data is from between December and March.

This Sentinel-2 mosaic can be considered a higher resolution supplement to the Green Marble and similarly it represents the surface color with compensation for the effects of the atmosphere.

Source data is mostly Copernicus Sentinel-2 imagery from 2016 to 2018 with smaller parts based on Landsat 8 imagery from 2013 to 2018.
